Dividend Recapitalization of DeIorio Foods
< Back to List

Chicago, IL – LaSalle Capital Group (ʺLaSalleʺ) is pleased to announce that it has completed a dividend recapitalization of its portfolio company, DeIorio Foods, Inc. (“DeIorio”), a manufacturer of premium frozen dough and bak-ery products based in Utica, New York. The proceeds from the recapitaliza-tion generated a distribution for DeIorio’s shareholders.

DeIorio was acquired by LaSalle’s portfolio company Violet Packing in January 2007 as it expanded its product line from tomato products into fro-zen pizza dough and other baked goods. The tomato sauce division of Violet Packing was sold to B&G Foods, Inc. in November 2010, leaving DeIorio as a standalone company. Rocco Martino, co-founder of LaSalle Capital Group and a DeIorio board member, said “DeIorio continues to generate strong or-ganic growth in its premium dough business and has expanded into new product lines such as par-baked and gluten-free. We look forward to con-tinuing our positive momentum and working with management to execute several exciting growth initiatives.ʺ
